The Acclaimed RF Microelectronics Best-Seller, Expanded and Updated for the Newest Architectures, Circuitry, and Devices Wireless communication is now almost as ubiquitous as electricity. However, the design and implementation of RF circuits and transceivers remains challenging, requiring a broad understanding of multiple disciplines, the management of complex tradeoffs, and innovative solutions for issues ranging from power to area consumption. In RF Microelectronics, Second Edition, Behzad Razavi systematically teaches the state-of-the-art in RF analysis and design, from specification through practical solution. Razavi has thoroughly revised this classic text to incorporate the latest developments in RF architecture, circuits, and devices, covering all key topics in far greater detail. This edition's stronger tutorial focus makes it even more valuable to students, and its deeper coverage of new technologies and analysis methods makes it indispensable to working engineers. This edition's extensive new coverage includes brand new chapters on integrated inductors and varactors, phase-locked loops (PLLs), and millimeter-wave techniques.
Another new chapter presents complete examples of transceiver design for Bluetooth, WLANs, and UWB. Each case study begins with the specifications provided by the standard, and then derives required circuit performance.
Coverage includes *Core RF analysis and design concepts, including linkages with analog design, microwave theory, and communication systems*An intuitive introduction to modulation theory and wireless standards from the standpoint of the RF IC designer*Transceiver architectures, including general considerations and specific techniques for receiver, transmitter, and OOK transceiver design*Low-noise amplifiers, mixers, passive devices, and oscillators*All-new coverage of integrated inductors and varactors, including monolithic inductors, modeling techniques, inductor geometries/properties, and MOS varactors *Phase-locked loop (PLL) analysis, design, and building blocks, with an emphasis on frequency synthesis applications*Integer-N Frequency and Fractional-N synthesizers*Innovative millimeter-wave techniques and solutions for CMOS circuit and transceiver design at 60 GHz and above*Power amplifiers: general considerations, classification, high-efficiency techniques, cascode output, large-signal impedance matching, linearization, polar modulation, outphasing, and more
Behzad Razavi, Professor of Electrical Engineering at UCLA, leads the Communication Circuits Laboratory (CCL). Emphasizing the use of mainstream CMOS technologies, CCL's research seeks and exploits new devices, circuits, and architectures to push the performance envelope. Razavi holds a BSEE from Sharif University of Technology and MSEE and PhDEE degrees from Stanford. He was with ATT Bell Laboratories and HP Labs until 1996. An IEEE Distinguished Lecturer and IEEE Fellow, his books include Design of Analog CMOS Integrated Circuits, Design of Integrated Circuits for Optical Communications, and Fundamentals of Microelectronics.
